  Les 12 coups de midi: Sébastien, ex-master of noon, explains why he no longer participates in the program

Broadcast on TF1 since 2010, 'Les 12 coups de midi' is unquestionably one of the most popular game shows in France . The proof ? At each broadcast, they are approximately more than 3 million to follow the show, hosted by Jean-Luc Reichmann. Much appreciated by viewers, it goes without saying that the companion of Nathalie Lecoultre greatly contributes to the success of the program . However, it regularly happens that the midday master overshadows him. A true star of the game, the current holder of this coveted title is none other than Stéphane. The father of the family has a string of victories, honoring his predecessors like Xavier Or Sebastian. Absent from the special broadcasts of the '12 noon shots', the latter currently a hit in another program , on another channel.

A game show champion

For years, the PAF channels compete in terms of TV games . It must be said that these programs remain safe bets, achieving very satisfactory audiences .

Furthermore, some people in have even become true specialists . This is particularly the case of Sébastien, a former midday master. Years after his reign in the cult TF1 show, the latter decided to try a new adventure .

Thus, on December 21, 2022, it is with great ambition that he appeared in 'Everyone wants to take his place' . A program that he watches from the beginning according to his words in the columns of Télé-Loisirs.

For information, it's not the first time he's taken part . Indeed, the candidate says that two years ago, he has already come to the program set . Beaujolais even reached the final, against Michaël, the 11th best champion in the game presented by Laurence Boccolini.

Alas, he lost. Seeing that Emilie, the champion who dethroned Guillaume , had only one victory on the clock, so he tried his luck again.

“(…) I said to myself that there was something to do,” he said.

This is a nice revenge since so far, the candidate has not suffered the slightest defeat . On January 11, 2023, he also won his 20th victory, thus accumulating a nice jackpot of €18,100 .

Absent from the “12 noon shots”: his explanations

Of course, man still has a long way to go. to hope to defeat Marie-Christine , the greatest player of 'TLVPSP'. And this, with 213 victories and a prize pool of 196,900 euros. However, he is on track to mark the history of the game once presented by Nagui. In any case, it's all the harm we wish him .

Still during his interview with Télé-Loisirs, Sébastien was questioned about his absence in 'Les 12 coups de midi' . To which he replied:

“I have already returned several times, in 2013 and 2017 I believe. Last year I was invited but I was on vacation at the same time. In 2020, the recording was the day after Everyone wants to take their place. »

Then, Sébastien explained that the candidates of the 12 blows did not have “not allowed to make several different games within six months” . Adding:

“And then it takes time to come to Paris, it takes several days off. It's complicated sometimes. »

As a reminder, in 2012, he was the fourth best Noon Master . The man left the game after 68 entries, 20 masterstrokes and 3 mystery stars. In all, the former midday master won the handsome sum of 233,626 euros .

By way of comparison, Stéphane, the current midday master, accused of being favored by the production , has already won 544,643 euros in earnings. And this, with 143 participations . Bref, yes Sébastien no longer participates in 12 shot bonuses , this is not the case for Xavier.

“As long as they call me, I will come”

Since its release, TF1's cult game has seen champions parade . And among the most emblematic and feared is Xavier. Moreover, on January 5, Laura's darling celebrated 10 years of his arrival in the '12 strokes of noon'.

It was in 2013, and the least we can say is that the young man made his opponents tremble . Note that none of them succeeded in dethroning him. For good reason, after 76 participations , he decided to leave the game for professional reasons.

Despite being 11th in the ranking of the greatest midday masters, Xavier continues to be an iconic figure in the game . The proof with his 7 victories during the famous Combat des maîtres and his presence during the primes. Interviewed by Télé-Loisirs, the professional engineer said:

“I imagine that I marked people since I am called back each time. I have no explanation to provide but it is always a pleasure to come back. As long as they call me, I will come. There is a soap opera side, people become attached to the life of this or that person. »

On the private side, since July 2020, he is married to Laura , which we have already seen on the set of 12 blows. And among the guests, in addition to the family, there was of course Jean-Luc Reichmann and some midday masters .
